This research proposal outlines studies aimed at identifying specific biomarkers of neurodegeneration. Given the complexity and clinical overlap of these disorders the identification of diagnostic biomarkers for their early detection is crucial; especially in the identification of at-risk individuals before the development of symptoms. This will allow early intervention with disease-modifying medications which by arresting neuronal loss would prevent or delay onset of the disease.
